Help & Advice

If your computer has suddenly started misbehaving after installing a new program or after installing an update then System Restore could just save the day for you - basically it will restore the computer settings back to a previous date/time when the computer was working okay (without affecting your data)

 

Restore points are automatically created by Windows on a regular basis or when you make any major changes to the system such as installing updates and installing new software, but if you wish to manually create a restore point this can be done through Control Panel by clicking System and Security > System > System Protection > Create - you can also delete restore points here and choose which drives are protected by System Restore
